The student who compiled this notebook was Thomas Hanbury, who studied law in England around 1690 during the reign of William and Mary. As I mentioned during a recent visit to Professor Mary Bilder's American Legal History class, his beautifully done notes, bound in vellum, have survived much better than modern students' flash drives or vinyl binders likely will!
The photo above is from Hanbury's entries under "Warranties." More photos will be up on our Facebook page. Much of the information included here is from a thorough description written by Michael von der Linn at The Lawbook Exchange.
